Title: The Discourse of Hospital Communication
Subtitle: Tracing Complexities in Contemporary Health Organizations
Written By: Rick Iedema
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403998485
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Professional and Organizational Discourse
Description:

Bringing together recent international research in the field of hospital
communication and interaction, the contributors to this book contextualize
clinical professional work by focussing on the rising intensity of information
and communication practices in organizations generally, and in health care in
particular. The book provides a rich resource for students and scholars
interested in how hospital work is performed and communicated and what the
hospital's extreme organizational complexity means for traditional
approaches to discourse analysis, communication research and activity
theory.
